Doctor Said I'm Not A Hair Transplant Candidate What Next?

Recommended Posts

I was asked this question recently, and there are so many different options out there. I'm curious to see what the community has to say, what your thoughts and input.

Doctor Said I’m Not A Hair Transplant Candidate What Next?

I would recommend an in person consultation. The patient may also be a candidate for body hair transplants. Getting on medical therapy is also important.

Get as many opinions as possible...in person of course.

Something else to consider is whether there's an expectation issue. If you're a NW 5 at 24 years old and want a low hairline with thick coverage over the entire area then you're probably not a candidate and the Dr may be telling you "No" based on that type of expectation. If you are willing to lower your expectations to a higher hairline, medium density through the front half, and leaving the crown alone for now, then you may be a candidate for that.

Great post, 

Young guys with aggressive hair loss tend to have unrealistic expectations. We all want to look like we're not balding, but it's not realistic for a guy who's already losing so much hair at a young age.
